    The movie is quite simple really:
    "Take me!"....
    More heavy breathing...
    that's all it is about

    CAPSULE REVIEW: I don't think you can make an artful pornographic movie. Sure, the level of sleaze and unabashed misogyny is absent in "9 Songs", but it is still a pornographic movie. And worst of all; it's boring, boring, boring. Revolving around the music of some listenable and some non-listenable Brit-rock, "9 Songs" schtick gets tiresome soon. Michael Winterbottom is a solid director and he isn't afraid trying on mild experiments but this is a dud that actually had to see in installments.

    Se quedó en una buena idea: la historia de una pareja común que, curiosamente, va a muchos conciertos. Pero el problema es eso, lo comunes que son. No hay argumento, no hay problemas, no hay conflictos, no hay nada: la película es un pretexto para insertar escenas ultra-explícitas de sexo y clips en vivo de bandas de mediados de los 00s en hora y siete minutos de lentitud.

    PD. Básicamente, es porno tipo Golden Choice.

    Wenn dieser Film künstlerischen Anspruch erhoben hat, jenseits davon expliziten Sex auf die Leinwand zu bringen, dann habe ich ihn verpasst.

    I love Michael Winterbottom's films and I have a huge amount of respect for the way he pushes at the boundaries of cinema's mainstream conventions.

    9 songs famously and successfully challenges the UK BBFC's boundaries for the depiction of sex. But that doesn't make it a good film. The nine songs of the title are interspersed with scenes of the lead couple fucking (yes, for real) and it turns out that that just isn't very interesting.

    It says a lot that the absolute memorable highlight of this film for me was the footage of the Von Bondies at Brixton Academy.

    This is one of those films you should watch every ten years, if anything just to use it to judge how your own tastes, character and maturity development. I can certainly say my second experience of it was different, and more informative. A film to review yourself by.

    No me parece raro valorar tanto a 9 SONGS. Es más, saber que para muchos es aburrida ó carente de gracia me hace disfrutarla un tanto más. Claro, la vi en un momento idóneo en mi vida. Quizá verla hoy, con más años encima no será lo que fue. Sin embargo, en el 2005, solo hubo 3 películas que puse encima de ella: (3) Kiss Kiss Bang Bang [que bien pudo ser un título alternativo para esta]; (2) Batman Begins;…

    I don't have a problem with Winterbottom shooting 200 hours of cheap footage for a concert/sex film. In fact, a lot of the songs are pretty damn awesome, had Winterbottom not shot most of the concert footage from a static viewpoint in the crowd.
